    Please don't insult conservatives. You are an authoritarian, why now are you ashamed to admit it?

    “There’s no one reason we lost,” Priebus plans to say, according to prepared remarks. “Our message was weak; our ground game was insufficient; we weren’t inclusive; we were behind in both data and digital; our primary and debate process needed improvement. … So, there’s no one solution: There’s a long list of them.”

    “Asked to describe Republicans, they said that the Party is ‘scary,’ ‘narrow minded,’ and ‘out of touch’ and that we were a Party of ‘stuffy old men,’” it states.

    What's scary about Republicans mandating that the government force women to have giant probes stuck in their privates against their will and against their doctor's wishes?
    My long search to find intelligent life within the Republican party is finally bearing fruit. Recognition of the problem is the first step towards recovery.

    Authoritarianism is the Ultimate Form of Conservatism. I have no problem stating that I'm an Authoritarian. I have a major issue with calling most people Conservatives. They're Centrists at best.

    That 30% are going to go away, period. If they want that 40% then they can simply become a shadow image of the Democratic Party while the 30% they choose to ignore sits and bides its time for REAL Change.

    We don't need elections, we have guns.

    When you are to the very far right, everyone looks left to you. I have a problem with calling Authoritarians Americans. They are dictator sympathizers at best.

    Whereas I have a major issue with calling any Socialist or Liberal anything positive or polite. I honestly believe that anyone willing to give their money to help someone who is not an immediate family member or close friend needs to have a mental health examination to determine their competency.

    Well it's a good thing your authoritarian views are irrelevent and worthless here in America. Always nice to see an authoritiarian hiding in a country that has freedoms they hate.

    No more irrelevant or worthless than this country is becoming because of those freedoms.

    Yet, here you are time after time and never leave. Look, here's the funny part. You've complained that you don't want to move to other "authoritarian" countries because they don't allow you to have guns. That's a FREEDOM here, yet you hate freedom. Can't make this **** up folks.

    The failure of authoritarianism is that an authoritarian is only happy if THEY are running things and not other authoritarians.
